The 2015 Chevy Tahoe vs. the 2014 Ford Expedition

2015 Chevy TahoeWhen looking for a solid SUV around Tampa, we at Cox Chevy in Bradenton know you have plenty of different choices. Our team thinks, though, the redesigned 2015 Chevy Tahoe is going to be the right one for you. It offers power, modern features like Bluetooth and telematics systems, and warranty coverage to give you peace of mind for years.

The SUV market is a crowded one these days, though, and while the Tahoe is certainly a favorite for many area drivers, some of you may be looking at a vehicle like the 2014 Ford Expedition. Let’s see whether or not Ford compares to the Tahoe.

The Power of a Pickup in an SUV

If you’re looking at vehicles like the Tahoe and the Expedition, you’re probably just as eager to know what kind of power specs they have as what kind of features or passenger capacity. We know many drivers look to the SUV as a mixture between a family and a work vehicle, like a minivan and a pickup combined, and the Tahoe is perfect for that.

The 5.3L V8 engine in each Tahoe is rated at 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque while maintaining an EPA-estimated 22 highway mpg.

If you expected the Expedition to offer something similar, well, you will be disappointed. Ford’s engine only manages 18 mpg on the highway and yet also offers up just 310 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. You read that right; Ford’s SUV is less powerful and less efficient.

Rely on Chevy Engineering

While both Ford and Chevrolet have built reputations for themselves, Chevy guarantees their SUV to last longer without issue than Ford’s. The warranty package for both vehicles includes a 36-month/36,000-mile basic warranty, but the powertrain coverage is where Ford falls short.

Drivers of the expedition get 5 years or 60,000 miles of powertrain coverage, but if you choose the Tahoe, you can drive up to 100,000 miles on the powertrain in those same five years without fear of having to pay for any necessary repairs to it. You see, Chevy wants you to drive your vehicle when you need to drive it.
